nowave is not dead
for anyone wanting an escape from the illusion of perfection regular music submits to this is it. The wild arching energy is almost vulgar. These recording would be banned in most communities governed by fascism so I believe it is highly important to honor those who put themselves out there. Hearing about war, work, and insecurities make me not want to be alive. This music makes me happy to be alive.
